    Moses said to Yahweh, "Behold, you tell me, 'Bring up this people:' and you haven't let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, 'I know you by name, and you have also found favor in my sight.' Now therefore, if I have found favor in your sight, please show me now your ways, that I may...

    But you, when you pray, enter into your inner chamber, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. In praying, don't use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speakin...

    Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree," that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Galatians 3:13'14 WEB....

Shock Treatment

  • Furthermore, we had the fathers of our flesh to chasten us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much rather be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days disciplined us as seemed good to them, but he for our profit, that we may be partakers of his holiness. All chastening seems for the present to be not joyous but grievous; yet afterward it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11 WEB.

    While at school, I learned to read and write, add and subtract, and much more. However, many times it was after school that the learning really began for me. Dad would tell us: "That electric fence will shock you, so stay away from it," but a six-year-old can feel very smart, and I loved anything electric, or so I thought.

    One day while trying to step over that electric fence, I found that he was right! Actions speak louder than words, and this time I remembered it well. Now I fully understood that his instructions were meant to protect me from suffering unnecessary pain. For those of you who have never grabbed an electric fence, it is something that you will remember for a long, long time. Some things we have to learn the hard way, then we understand.

    Often, the Lord will give us a little warning, and if we persist, He will let us go on our way. His word is there to protect us from harm, but He will not force us to obey it. If you want to avoid the shocks, burns, and scratches, be quick to listen.

    Yet even when we go ahead and do something foolish, He is there to pick us back up in His loving arms without even an: "I told you so" when we come to our senses. He is a loving Father who only wants the best for us, now if we only listen to Him.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your mercy on my life, for I am still breathing today. Please help me recognize when You are speaking to me, and give me the grace to be obedient. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Amen!! That you for this reminder today. This is so true and most of us have to learn things the hard way. We need to be quick to listen and slow to speak.
